    Are We Alone? - Fiona - 48 Hour Compo Entry

    Little space exploration game. Click around to travel with your spaceship and find out if we are alone in the universe!

    I didn't manage to put a game over screen in, if you find yourself stranded then you need to restart the game!

    It was interesting until I realized that my screen res was too small to play it :(

    I haven't finished this game yet but I'm really enjoying it :)
    Almost did something similar to your game.

    Oh, this is great :-).

    exploration + ressource-gathering is fun, and the "this guy died of dyssentry"-vibe is fun. Reminds me positively of "Infinite Adventures" / "Flotilla" / what do you call this genre" - games.

    Nice work!

    Oh, this is great.

    Makes me even look over the bugs :-)

    The linux version dosen't work for me, it gives me this error:
    ImportError: No module named OpenGL.GL

    So I tried the windows version in wine instead. Good game, but a little confusing when you're stranded on venus :P

    Nice idea and all-around execution. I would have kept playing this for a while if it had a bit more variety in what you find on planets.

    It lacks variety, in my opinion. Other than that, excellent game. I always end up stranded on some distant planet with no crew members :'(

    Heart breaking...

    After a few rough starts I was finally on my way to clearing out all of the solar systems easily. With only two solar systems left, I hop into one of them.

    "Oh hey, I'm basically on top of a planet *click*. Save a tiny bit of fuel..."

    The ship then circled the planet until I ran out of fuel.

    Nice concept, pretty well explored, great flavour. Probably the best "Mood" of any of the games so far, along with being the best entry I've played.

    Would make a rocking little Flash game.

    Great game! Mood and style are very nice. Starting funds or mining success should be higher, though. Its really hard to keep the funds flowing. You basically have to trial-and-error over multiple plays and make a plan in which order to progress, which isn't really that much fun.

    It is just...perfect!
    I played a dozen times...and was hugely rewarded! (I won)
    I think the difficulty is great : It HAS to be difficult, that's the whole point. I can't find any critic...even the fact that the game won't quit itself is great in the end...

    Cripes, it's so hard! I liked the vibe and I really wanted to find some space babies but I just kept running out of fuel (which of course causes my spaceship to immediately stop :)).

    This is really fun. Hard as hell... but fun. I'd love to see this expanded upon wit a boost in the artwork. Keep working on this!
